Natural Hazards Research and Mitigation: Global Navigation Satellite System, Data Diversity, and Emerging Technology II

Session ID#: 11023

Session Description:
The Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) (including American GPS, Russian GLONASS, Chinese Beidou, European Galileo, Japanese QZSS, and Indian IRNSS) has emerged as a practical technology for monitoring, forecasting and rescue management and future planning. The new development is economical and provides real-time GNSS data to estimate earthquake parameters, detect tsunamis, monitor volcanoes, and track severe floods and weather events. Both UN General Assembly and the International GNSS Service (IGS) have made specific efforts to share geospatial data to benefit people to make Earth as sustainable planet.

This session will focus on the state of the research, opportunities to translate research results into application, and approaches to implement GNSS as part of a comprehensive and durable hazard mitigation system.  Contributions related to GNSS technology, combined with seismic or integrated with other approaches and systems, data analysis and various applications to natural hazards, their monitoring and mitigation are welcome.
